This recipe was given to me by my aunt. I've never heard of it before but it is really good. A mixture of turnip greens, northern beans, kielbasa sausage, and seasonings. Great served with cornbread.

Mmm, love turnip soup! With cornbread. I modified somewhat using what I had on hand (1 northern, 1 black-eyed, 1 pinto) and a can of Rotel tomatoes instead of the vegetable mix. Love the combination of spices in this soup. Read More

Delicious! Great on a cold winter day. I have been making this for some time and everyone that has tried it loved it. I don't use the pepper sauce since I use hot sausage but that is just my preference. Read More

I made this in my Instant Pot and was delighted with it. I used dry beans and fresh turnip greens. I made it again and added some fresh corn from my freezer and it was even better! Six stars from me! Read More

I grew up eating this soup. My dad used Spanish smoked Chorizo not Mexican instead of Kielbasa. Read More

Took this to a church pot luck and it got great reviews. I omitted the tabasco and added shredded chicken and purple hull peas and a little okra. Make sure to use low sodium broth, I didn't and it was a little too salty. Read More
